This is what it’s come to?
Democrats are so instant on allowing people to illegally live in this country they are now assaulting people who follow the law?
It looks to be that way.
Texas Republican Matt Rinaldi was reportedly threatened and assaulted on the House floor by Democrats after he told them he had called Immigration and Customs Enforcement to inform them of the illegal immigrant protesters that were repeatedly disrupting the lawmakers’ proceedings.

They were protesting SB-4, legislation that essentially bans sanctuary cities in Texas.
It would also target officers who refuse to comply with immigration law, leading to possible jail time and some hefty fines.
According to Fox News, hundreds of protesters showed up and were chanting.
“Activists wearing red T-shirts reading ‘Lucha,’ or ‘Fight,’ quietly filled hundreds of gallery seats as proceedings began. After about 40 minutes, they began to cheer, drowning out the lawmakers below.”
Rinaldi recounted what happened on his social media:
Today, Representative Poncho Nevarez threatened my life on the House floor after I called ICE on several illegal immigrants who held signs in the gallery which said ‘I am illegal and here to stay.’ Several Democrats encouraged the protestors to disobey law enforcement,” Rinaldi wrote. “When I told the Democrats I called ICE, Representative Ramon Romero physically assaulted me, and other Democrats were held back by colleagues.
He claims he continued to receive threats, which he met with the promise of self-defense. The 2A kind.
During that time Poncho told me that he would ‘get me on the way to my car.’ He later approached me and reiterated that ‘I had to leave at some point, and he would get me.’ I made it clear that if he attempted to, in his words, ‘get me,’ I would shoot him in self defense.
He said he is now “currently under DPS protection”. He stands by his claims and said there were many witnesses who “heard the threats made and witnessed Ramon assaulting me.”
In a press conference, Democrats placed the blame on Rinaldi, saying he threatened to “put a bullet in the head” of one of those involved in the dispute.
Rinaldi didn’t deny that he had threatened to do that to someone, he actually admitted it. But he said he only did it in response to the threats against him.
